Sunday Mornings 9:30am (60 Minutes)
Sunday mornings at First UMC combine traditional elements of ritual and order with a warm spirit, vital prayer, and theologically progressive preaching. This service incorporates music, the arts, prayer, and Scripture into a service with life-giving energy. The Chancel Choir and occasionally the Bell Choir offer their gifts to this service in leading parts of the music, and often the music accompaniment ranges from pipe organ, trumpet, flute, harp, and grand piano, to wooden flute, bells, and guitar. Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of the month.*
Children of all ages are always welcome in worship! Worship is inter-generational. We also offer the Early Childhood Room (Nursery) for children up to age 3, and our Sunday School called Faith Walk which begins after the Children's Time (named the Story for All Ages). For more information about Sunday morning offerings for children and youth, please visit the Children and Youth Ministry pages. Fellowship time follows worship in the Fellowship Hall. Everyone is always welcome!
*In the United Methodist Church, Holy Communion is served at an open table. This means that everyone who wants to come and receive communion is welcome to do so. You do not have to be a member of the church or a United Methodist. All are welcome to receive God's grace through the bread and juice.
